Jello Shot and Jello Shots In The Making

Making jello shots are great fun for every one, even in the preparation and making of the shots can be a lot of fun. A gelatin shot or jello shot has always been a smash hit in bars, night clubs, theme bars at home and parties. For almost any condition that would solicit the use of any variety of alcoholic beverage, usually rum, vodka, tequila or in extreme cases grain alcohol, (although I would hold off on this unless you want to do some damage).

The purpose of the alcohol is to replace the water or juice with alcohol, or what ever you use to set the jello shots mixture. An American mathematician by the name of Tom Lehrer is thought to have been the 1st to craft the jello shot in the near beginning 1950s while working for the NSA, where he developed vodka jello, this was his genius idea to sneak alcohol onto the military base with out any of the commanding officers getting wind to it. The mightiest concentration of alcohol is somewhere in the region of 18 and 21 ounces. of vodka per 3 oz.

package of Jell-O powder, or about 30% (ABV) alcohol by volume. Alternatives A few gelatinous desserts can be manufactured using agar instead of jello, allowing them to set far quicker and at higher temperatures. Agar is a vegetable additive that is produced from seaweed and is very useful in jello shot mixes for it rapid setting times. This is also a good choice when making jello shots for vegetarians or vegans.

Agar is far more closely related to pectin and a few other gelling plant carbohydrates than to ordinary gelatin. There are different alternatives to vegetarian jello, this is known by the name carrageenan. This alternate will solidify faster than the agar, this makes it popular for kosher cooking. Though it, too, is a type of seaweed, it does not have the same bad sort of smell when being cooked that you would sometimes find when you cook with agar Chemistry Fresh pineapple should really be avoided when making jello shots, it contains the enzyme bromelain which must can never be allowed to mix with the jello shot mixture as this enzyme will prevent the jello from setting, this enzyme is common in most citrus and tropical fruits.

Papaya and pawpaw contain the enzyme papain, kiwi fruit contains actinidin, and figs contain ficin- all with similar effects. Cooking denatures the enzyme, rendering it inoperative so if you want these jello shot flavors get the wife to fire up the stove.
